Great views spoilt by overgrown trees, great walks spoilt by overgrown bushes, grass, trees, weeds etc. The whole place just looks like it is neglected. No signage, no information. Overall probably not worth a visit.

It is very easy to reach the Hohensyburg hill and park. From Dortmund Hbf, you can go by metro to Hörde Bahnhof, then there will be signs showing the exit where you should go up to take the bus 442 to Syburg. The bus goes...More

If you're looking for a nice walk with lovely views this is a great place to come. Car park costs and make sure you come on a clear day otherwise you'll miss out on the fantastic views.

Well worth a detour out of Stuttgart - you don't need to pay the extra to go inside to appreciate this castle. You can walk all the way around the ramparts for a 360 degree view of the area. There's a picnic area with tables...More

First of all, stay away from the 'bicycle route' suggested by Google along the steep cliff on the South side of the ruin. Walking down a bicycle here is possible but I wouldn't want to have to push one up there. Take the Syburger Dorfstrasse...More

We spent the day going around the castle and it was nice, not super impressed with the whole experience but it is something to do when it's sunny outside and you don't want to spend the day at home.

To get to this place from Dortmund Hauptbanhof (central station), you need to get on the U41 subway line in direction of Hörde, hop off at Hörde Banhof station and get on the 442 bus in direction of Syburg, hopping off in the last stop,...More

The original monument before it was renovated in 1935 was amazing, but it was rebuild in minimalist style. The sheer size, the statues and the view are still impressive, and it's a nice walk to the top.
